Christ Redeemer Church

1

Bartlesville, Oklahoma

Another Bruce Goff design is the Christ Redeemer Church, which is now being used as a youth center. He often used found materials, and the broken glass pieces are from the glass manufacturer nearby. In midst of the random configuration of the stone tiles, the diamond shaped steel cased windows accentuate clarity and order, striking balance between ornamental bejewelment and clear definition. His collagey methods are another way of looking at the finely detailed Arts and Crafts Movement led by Frank Lloyd Wright.
